Every year, we throw billions of tons of waste material in the form of food, drink cans, glass bottles, and plastic and metal waste. More than 30% of that waste comes from packaging materials alone! And where does all this waste go? Almost 90% of this waste resides in some dump or landfill, where it takes almost 100 years for material like clothes to decompose naturally. Material like glass doesn’t easily break down, and can be found in perfect form even after a couple centuries.
